Apparently there is little reason for alarm over the long voyage of the man-of-war Lan? caster. Under an antiquated regulation our p. ar vessels are not allowed to proceed under steam unless a great emergency exists. Isn't it time that such a rule was abrogated? The only reason for it is economy, but that variety of economy may prove costly. Tha Lancaster is a stanch vessel and haa probably been de? layed by bead winds. So few changes in the Interstate Commerce law were suggested by the Commissioners in their first report that the satisfactory workings of tbo measure during the lirst eight months after it became operative caused surprise. One of the amendments now proposed is that the decisions of the Commission shall be final whenever both barties to a controversy stipu? late to abide By such decision and make no appeal to the court*. This appears entirely reasonable. It will relieve the courts, to somo extent at least, and will hasten ihe settlement of disputed point*. This amendment ought to receive favorable consideration from Congress. A strange spectacle was piraBnted in Re corder Smyth's court yesterday. A man wae on trial for murdering his daughter and thc principal t.stu.ioii;. again, i him nma p\< n !?-. a sister of the murdered girl. The defendant did not appear to feel bis position keenly; it is urged in his behalf that he is mentally un? sound, but bis air of indifference may be as? sumed. The daughter whose testimony may send her father to the scaffold showed little. if any, ?motion during her recital. Such scenes are rate in our courts. That this is so is in a certain sense an index oi otu piogrt\*** in civi.i zation. , *> Mayor Hewitt's argument in behalf of his Rapid Transit bUl before the Joint Committee on Railroads at Alban** wa* a forcible present* lion of the scheme set out by him in his third mMsage, sent to the Board of Aldermen on January .'il. A striking difference between Mr. Hewitts plan and that favored by thc Aldermen is thai sounding le itu- ertnei tin construction of iho roads would be put in charge of a commission, while the Aldermen want to keep everything possible in their own ands. There is no doubt as to which method e people of this city, in the light of ex rienco, would prefer. Governor Hill is nothing if not tricky. His ptitation in that respect has long been eatab kod. but I hi*- quality in his character stood it sharply yesterday, when he attempted to ring a trap upon the Republican Senators id secure the confirmation ol his Quarantine miina'ie ns. The scheme was fairly well laid, it?it didn't woik. The Republicans were il al) caught napping. Thi1* imident should it them on their guard for (he rest of the J ssion. Next year they will probably havo lothor sort of Governor to deal with. How the saloon dominates thf* city of Brook n is well shown in the presentment made usterday by tho Kings County Grand Jury, j hey say that the number of saloons has in eased to such an extent that in some parts of j ie city there are twenty on a single block, j h?- E\t i-( Cornmiwiioiiei*-. it is a*-* ned huv j .limited power in the granting of licenses, and j o increasing burden of taxation is largely j ie to the increasing use of strong drink, j ortunately. along with this doleful picture j ime* the news of the passage by the Assembly the High License bill, which nothing bnt the ! overnor's veto will pi event from becoming a w. If the operations of this law bear any I ich fruit as High License has produced in tiiladelphia, not only Brooklyn, but manj her cities in this Stale will rejoice in a new der of things. THE HIGH LICENSE BILL SAFE, The High-License bill has finally passed the isembly. and now goes to the Senate, where will hardly meet with the obstacle* it has iieniintered in the lower UOUBB. This is thc id of a long pul), in the face of peculiar ditti ilties. Our readers do not need to be told why o consider this an auspicious result for the ?op)e of thU Slate, lt is enough to record the ct and rejoice at it. It is a source of great itisfaotion also to know that tho bill com anded the Constitutional number of Repub ian votes. We admire and honor the ono emocratic member. Mr. Bagley, of Greene ounty, who had the courage to break with is party on this question, but every Rcpub can will be glad to soe that there were Re nl'licar. votes enough without him to pass the ill. The fact that six Republicans voted against ie bill will temper the grati fica*, ion with which us result will be received by the masses of io party, but cannot destroy it.

We ask the attention of the constituents of bose men, and thc Republican press of their islricts, to tho cours? they have followed in oting as the saloon -keepers wanted them to ote. on this bill. We know of no reason why ny one of them should bc re-elected by Re ublicans to represent the Republican party, 'hey ought, in fact, to be classed as Demo rats. If they refuse to abide by the judg lent of the party upon a hi<_h moral Issue, what uarantce have we that they will not betray it .henever they see that it is to their own ad antage to do so? The safe course would be o leavo them at homo. Mr. Bankson T. Morgan enjoys the distino ion of being the only Republican Assembly? man from New-York City who voted against he bill. How far Mr. Morgan can be trusted n any matter may be inferred from the follow ng extract from a letter, the original of which 'he Tribune has in its possession, and which Ir. Morgan wrote on the 3d inst to George P. Cooke, in care of R. II. Mucy _k Co., Four ecnth-st. and Sixth-avc.: I am glad to have reeeived your letter, and obliged o you for your frankness In the ci-itlctam of my ifflcial conduct If I air. obliged by party caucut to ?oti* for the Crosby High Licet)*, bill, I .hall do to mr ame it lt the dictate of party a* expretted In tbe ?eprcsentatlve* of the Legislature in the Ataembly. rho last declaration of the Republican party In itt platform at Saratoga doclec*- for local option at '-.pressed by the people st the polls.

The Home Rule cause has made no progress since tho opening ol the present session ol Parliament. The Government majority has not been reduced on any (juestion relating tc Ireland, and thc political authority of thc Ministers has been increased by the passage ol a groat financial measure and the i tit rod urti oi of a broad scheme of local government Ob? struction has been abandoned by Mr. Farnell i orders; Mr. Balfour has been successful ii governing Ireland with inflexible firmness and the popular impression has been strength? ened that whatever vicissitudes the future ma have iu reserve, England is at present gcttinj on exceedingly well with a Conservative Gov eminent that brings in Liberal measures, nm with a Coercion act which is potent to kceu thi peace in thc island. The bye-elections, whicl in the autumn ran heavily against the Govern mont, have shown unmistakable signs of re action against Home Rule. The great reduc lion of the Liberal majority in the Gowe division of Glamorganshire can be explamci in good part by dissensions over candidate and factions in the party; but coming o. i does after reverses at Doncaster and elsewhere it tends v0 confirm the Government's clair that the constituencies have not repented o their verdict againrt Mr. Gladstone's bill Unionist prospects have materially improve* since the Spalding election. The Hom l.ulcrs have had much to depress and little t encourage them in tho proceedings at West minster and in thc bye-elections. These results, while disappointing to sin cere friends of the Home Rule cause, were pei haps inevitable in the circumstances. Ministry with a great majority on its side ha presumptively a fix years' lease of power. I could not be placed in minority without th conversion of the Liberal-Unionists to Hom Rule, and this was not a re. ult thut could b anticipated lifter the sacrifice* thev hsd mad in Mking a firm stand against Mr. Glndatom Ministers had only to re-enact the Coercio laws and to introduce Liberal measure* In ord< to retain the support of their n?efal Millet Thia they have done, and their majorities hav nut fallen off. Public op'nlon. alwav* situ gish in England after a general election, ooul only find expression in occasional contests ovt vacant seat*, and ihcsc bye-elections, bein subject to local Influences, conld ordinarily b explained away by one side or the other. Tho elections are never an unerring test oi the con? ditions of public opinion. During thc last years of Lord Beaconsfield'! administration there were no indications in borough or county e'ections of the great popular revolt against him which occurred ?n 1880. The uticcitain ties and contradictions of these local contests aro $o well understood in England that little dependence is placed upon them by experienced politicians. Even if the elections had con? tinued to be as favorable to the liberals'as they were in the autumn, the Government would not have swerved from its course, nor have admitted that the constituencies had withdrawn th"ir support. The Ministers wen* too securely entrenched in power to be dis? lodged within two years of thc last appeal to the country. Delay In the consummation of its hopes re? specting legislative independence is not en? tirely without compensations fer the unhappy island. The Irish people arc under the dis? cipline of self-restraint They are learning the v.'tues of patience, self-control and moderation and are showing themselves to be worthy of that full measure of self-government which their representatives have demanded in their name. . I THE REF"RU MASK. Mr. Foulke. president of the Indiana Civil Service Association, is an innocent person. Ho was actually so duped as to suppose that "The New-York Nation" cared something about Civil Service Reform, and would publish in? formation as to Violations of the law in Indi? ana. It seems to le a mystery to him, even yet. why the valuable evidence he had to give was suppressed by that journal and never pub? lished, though editorially mentioned by "Har? per's Weekly," to which he also sent it. and he was still more surprised and pained to find thal the President himself when the whole matter was laid before him. replied that he "was sony Mr. Foulke had made tho investigation." and "hoped he would go slowly." Lest the Civil Service Association should investigate too much, the President appears to have concluded to investigate not at all. and so. according to Mr. Foulke, "we have not had any Civil Ser? vice Reform in Indiana." Nobody is surprised. The President's regret that investigation had been made which re? veals- tho wido gap between his professions and his perfoimances docs not strike anybody a* strange. People who knew anything of "The Nation," and other so-called organs of Sham Reform, could have informed Mr. Foulke be? fore he made hts experiment that no facts of the kind lie had to offer would be published by them. It is the well-recognized function of these sham reformers to keep up the false pretence that the President is doing as well as he can, so that Mr. Cleveland may be sustained in making the fight for fiec trade. Civil Servico Reform was only a mask for free trad? in the Presidential campaign of 1881, and a particularly diaphanous mask at that. Since then it* has become something worse. The conduct of thc public service in Indiana is disgraceful, the Civil Service Association reports. Ignorant and incompetent pail Nm woikers have been appointed, in such number thst the necessary duties of the Government cannot be performed: * mail accumulates in street boxes until they are full and can receive no more." and a letter in one instance "tonk three WBSkfl to be delivered from OM part of the city of Indianapolis to another." The evi? dence created no sensation, because every one knows that, in greater or less degree, it is true ef the public service everywhere. In all its branches and in all parts of the country it ha* disgracefully dctcriont'd. in consequence of the substitution of 80.000 to 80. OOM inex? perienced party workers for trained and efficient officers. The President must have been per? fectly aware tliat deterioration would tc. ult everybody else was aware of it; and the chanj.es have gone on nevertheless with the President's approval, while the sham reformers shoal hosanna.!* to the Great TV'ormer, who "is doing as well as he can"?particularly for frco trado. STRIKES ASD THEIR FRUIT. That is a new departure indeed which Mr. I't.wderly makes, in appealing di.cctiy to tho silent, and conservative majority af the Knight* of I .abor, aa he does, against the misleading guidance of a noisy and hot-headed minorey. Bil position is that strikes aro wasteful and suicidal, that the principles of his order foibid them, except on certain conditions which are habitually disregarded, that the power of ?he head of the order to discipline members or beal leaders for beginning strikes in violation cf its niles has been limited by the uncertain support given by local organizations, that the majority of members arc or may be deprived of a voice by the virtual dictation of local leaders and the more turbulent members, and that he therefore calls upon each member of the entire organization to answer whether the executive will be sustained in putting dow*, thc disregard of its principles or not. If sus? tained, the order will spend in educating inc i workers the (300.000 which it " sunk last year ? in the maelstrom of strikes." But he declare* l "if the practice of rushing Into reckless strikes I is lo oontinue, I would rather stop at once." i Mr. Powderly's appeal ls based upon ex? perience which ho declares, "demonstrates i that the order will not support ..trikes." A i few individuals have power to rush through a ; meeting a decision to .trike. Bnt they have not power to compel the conservative and silent f majority to tax themsclve* in supporting pro ; oeedings contrary to the principles of their organization. Mr. Powderiv says : 1 Th* straight path lt the bett In the end. Thn . loral bully o' loud-mouthed enthusiast may sBMMl In creating a sentiment for a time against thc man who refuses to yield Rut. when men find thai prom Ma are not kept. th?v have a greater cause fer anger than If they were told what to expect in the beginning. His utterances on this subject aro not new r f.r he says, "At Minneapolis I said that my _ vote would never again go to sustain a strike $ unless the laws of Knighthood were li.ed up to t in inaugurating it I intend to keep my wok! " >. Holding the resort to strikes suicidal and fatal ii to the best interests of workingmen, Mr. Pow f derly** declaration is logically con. istent, he . would rather "stop nt once," abandon the il leadership, and leave those who believe in the ? practice to run the organization to its ruin. 0 This candid appeal is not likely to have the - hTcco which Mr. l'owd'-rly anticipates. H.* looks for a definite decision, one way or the - other, and ls not likely to get one. By a tbou - mnd device* the local leaders who believe in . strikes, who are already engaged in or plan _ n.ng strikes, who have made frequent strikes t their means of keeping their hold upon tho r organisation, and of getting money to bo i secretly expended, can Wfktat i diieet answer *) by the individual members of the question*. > which Mr. Powderly submit*. Rs w ill find that in a great number of case* it will be evaded 1 simply because the local leader* in the organi r sation do not believe in its principles, or have other motives than to serve tts true interests ? But the sppeal w ill nevertheless do much good, because it will force the more sensible mem I beys to consider the ruinous tendency of the r course into which the organisation i* com inn t ally pushed, bv "the local bully or loud I mouthed enthusiaat." or not rarely by mci. I who live on the cause of Labor, and fill their kets with the money contributed tc aid in intaining strikes. This is a caso where nking will do good. t was eminently flt. and proper that Mr. Sh.-e i, the Democratic leader in the A?scnit>ly. should eavor yesterday to place obstructions in the h of the great reform bill of the ses. 'on. His ty has done little else during tile last quarter i century than fight on the wrong side "f all the tt efforts for the promotion of the public weal. 1858 the Dema>cracy was the mainstay of the ?e power. In 1868, unchanged in charaotcr or doney, it is the mainstay of the rum power. Instead of the fathers 6hall come up the Idren. But it sometime* happens that thc ldran do not say " ditto" to their progeni .. Here is a cass in point: Tho late James Warren, of Buffalo, was a member of the Rc )lican Committee of this State when it met in ii to select a place for holding a State Cou itlon. Ile did not ask to have the convention -t in Buffalo, and when General Sharpe rallied i on his modesty Mr. Warren replied that he not regard Buffalo as central enough for a ivcntion city. Four years later O. 0. Warren, honored son of an honored father, I* member the Republican Committee, and he not only ines that Buffalo, while not too central, ls cen 1 enough for a convention, but persuades a jority of the committee to his way of thinking. District-Attorney Fellows promises to call one ll.e brib' rc enses for trial in April. Mr. Fellows tuld understand precisely the result of starting ? of these cases and then not prosecuting lt ?rorously enough to secure a conviction. The blic is not in a temper to look lightly upon a lure. Besides, Mr. Fellows's record will come 0 inevitable comparison with Mr. Nicoli's, and large ante-election promises have not been for? men. ?? k veritable chestnut of falsehood reappears in s circular issued hy the Tariff Reform Club of s city, begging for MilMbBttOM to assist lu ?ending thick darkness ever the land. Among 1 alleged information which the club proposes scatter fur and wide is this, that " the differ *e tietween the prices paid by consumers for idea affected by customs duties and th. ces which would be paid under a properly tm )ed tariff exceeds |.".0o.000.000 per annum." e untruth is ancient, hut not venerable. Its ;sehood has been many times conclusively med, but that does not prevent Hs reiteration y more flinn President Cleveland wns prevented un repeating, in his MfMBfB "ie erroneous as ?tion that the tariff was levied upon 4.000 artl ?s, more or less. This assertion was made by r. Tilden through the Kate Mr Dorsheimer in I pnmunt iamento at St. Louis in 1874, and was mediately shown to lie erroneous to the extent 3,000 articles or more, but lt bas ever since en copied as Gospel truth Dy reformers of thc ?rn'icratie var,edy. a The canals stand A good chance of havins cir innings next week. 'Hie Cantor bill, whicb ? ITi'or.ates Si.000.000 comes un in the Senate Wednesday: while on Thursday, the Assembly II consider the Ryun bilk whicb appropriate* like sum. The majority of the Canal Committee the Assembly is in favor of outting down thc ipropriation to 1530,000. For reasons which ? hav.* already pi,int.-d out it certainly ought it to reach a higher figure. From the point of view of the public welfare is unfortunate that necessity has arisen for e reduction of the working force in the Custom ouse. There is no doubt that the orderly and pid transaction of business will be interfered ith. But there is equally little doubt that thc ?portunit", has been \\. bunnie! by tin- Democratic irtisans who manage the fusion) llou**c in these generate days as affording a pretext for getting J of the Republican employes, whose places can ? filled by-and-by with men who can be depended i to do yeoman service for thc Democratic party thc coming campaign. Of course, the little istaele of Civil Service examinations will not ! allowed to stand in the way. The inferestintr statement is made that ft rowt.-Sequnrd has been making exp-riinents to r-termine whether or not the human breath wns ipablc of producing any poisonous effects. If ie I*mf MM desires to renew tin se ex|>eriment? i ndvant.i-.eous circumstances, we would adv se im to attend a representative Democratic con ention and obtain leave to sam nie th'- breaths of m delegates that come to the front in oppns'tlon i " sumptuary laws." Tf sueb a collection of n*aths does not yield a crood a rt iel" of poison, the Tofessor might as well abandon his experiments. Tlie Grand Jury finds that a unod many llouor eal'-rs kept their saloons open last election dav. here is no other day In the year when drinking liould be so stringently prevented. F.very ^loon-keeper who violates the law on that day wehr, to be instantly deprived of his license, he sa'oo ns have entirely too much Influence in otlties, and particularly on the day when the otes are cast should their Influence be reduced o a minimum. _. . -?_ Ex-Mayor Low expresses some sensible views in is letter to Assemblyman Tallmadsre concerning lr. McCann's Police Justice bill. He says that , ls very doubtful whether another police oourt j needed in Brooklyn, and that if it is, the matter hould be put at the discretion of the Mayor, and ot made mandatory by the Legislature. Another ioint is that the appointment, if made at all, hould be made by the Mayor, and not by thc lay or, Controller, and Auditor acting together, it present Bridge trustees and police j est ices in Irooklyn are named by these three officials; bul he method is not a good one. For instance, chen Mr. Low wa* Mayor his effort* t*. ntroduce a new element Into the Bridge Board cere rendered nugatory by the Democratic Coo roller and Auditor, who insisted on retaining thc ,ld trustees. The Republicans in thc Senate ind Assembly may well heed Mr. Low's advice n regard to the proposed polio* justics. PERSOSAL.
